When God was Kicked Out, Atheism Took over & Reprogrammed Youth
Two years after the Supreme Court defined humanism1 as a religion (Trocaso v. Watkins, 1961), prayer (Engel v. Vitale, 1962) and Bible reading (Abington Township School District v. Schempp, 1963) were ruled unconstitutional in public schools, leaving a void soon filled by the newly defined religion that rejects God and promotes atheistic doctrines contrary to the Bible and U.S. culture.
Professions weren’t listed for Humanist Manifesto I signers in 1933, but the list for the 262 who signed Humanist Manifesto II in 1973 revealed 73 educators. Meaning, those 73 U.S. educators accepted this doctrine and goal of humanism: “What more daring a goal for humankind than for each person to become in ideal, as well as practice, a citizen of a world community.”
141 signed Humanist Manifesto 2000. Of them, 56 signatories were from the U.S. and half (28) of them were listed as professors or administrators from U.S. colleges and universities. No less than a Harvard professor of education and psychiatry revealed humanism’s plan to reprogram children when he spoke during a childhood education seminar in 1973. He stated:
“Every child in America entering school at the age of five is mentally ill, because he comes to school with certain allegiances toward our founding fathers, toward our elected officials, toward his parents, toward a belief in a supernatural Being, toward the sovereignty of this nation as a separate entity. It’s up to you teachers to make all these sick children well by creating the international children of the future.” (Note the all-encompassing goal of humanism.)
Georgia Tech’s Technique announced educators’ adoption of atheistic humanism in the article “Humanism dominates philosophy of educators,” October 17, 1975. By then, students were already taught to base their moral and ethical decisions on humanist doctrine, i.e. atheism.
During Human Rights Week, December 6-13, 1978, Academic Humanists from local colleges and organizations met for formal discussions in Atlanta. The Freeman Digest, September 1978 interview with former NEA president Katherine Barrett revealed her future plans for schools:
The school will be the community; the community, the school. The so-called “basic skills,” that currently represent nearly the total effort in elementary schools, will be taught in one quarter of the school day. The teacher can rise to his true calling – a conveyor of values, a philosopher. Teachers no longer will be victims of change; we will be agents of change.
